year later. the anniversary is this tuesday and the republican governor says his administration is not to blame for delays in aid. he's pointing the fingers at congress for taking three months to approve a releasedded package. people are still waiting for aide and dealing with red tape put in place to prevent fraud. last year's storm damaged 360,000 homes and businesses. and a boardwalk in new york damaged in last year's storm has just reopened. the 2.2-mile-long boardwalk in long beach has made of sustainable hard wood, concrete and other sound materials. it's meant to endure the brunt of any future storm. governor has been in -- on hand for a big ribbon-cutting. and a big 40. and around here, boy, we are in the middle of a nice weekend. >> and kind of starting out a little warming on the shoreline, but maybe -- >> it is halloween. and it does look a little bit spooky out there this morning. we'll get sunshine a little but later in the day but we're in for a bit
8:42 am
of a cool change in the bay area. the numbers are going to fall a little bit today, and then more tomorrow. the winds will pick up tonight. that sets the stage for what might be a winter storm except it's not. it's going to get cool and we're not going to get very wet at all tomorrow. we're starting out with numbers in the mid 40s to the low 50s and later today we're recovering in the mid 70s inland. we still have sun coming out inland and it looks as if that low cloud will persist at the shoreline. raders are taking on the steelers at 1:05 p.m. it will be sunny and mild. 67. there will be a few clouds around. if you want to take the kids out, they're having boo at the zoo today. the oakland zoo and also at the san francisco. it will be sunny and on the mild side. low pressure will be approaching for the pacific northwest. temperatures fall. winds pick up tonight. high pressure gets finally booted out so that tomorrow we get that low. the brunt of the low is passing over to the east, and because it's that far east, it doesn't look -- it's certainly not going to draw a bull's-eye in the bay
8:43 am
area. in fact, it's just in the far east bay and in the south bay that we'll have the highest chance of showers tomorrow. everybody is vulnerable but it's not going to amount to much and we might not see anything at all it's going to cool off. monday the temperatures bottom out. we'll recover by midweek and temperatures will warm again. you can see the temperatures bottoming out. the livermore temperatures that fell from the upper 80s over the weekend and will tank tomorrow in the mid 06-degree range and we'll recover those temperatures by the end of the week. by tomorrow looks chilly and maybe a little bit wet. it's not going to amount to much. it's 65 in sacramento. the romantically-named 67. 58 at eureka and f 6 at redding. halloween looks nice. it will be clear. it will be a little chilly but light october. sunset 6:12 p.m. and looks like a nice night. doesn't look like a bad day. livermoore will still be in the 70s and san jose about average for this time of year. 75 in san jose.
8:44 am
68 in freemont. in the east bay we're going to be looking for 75 at pittsburg. 73. up in the north bay not bad. but plenty of low clouds around simpson beach. mill valley will finally clear off later today. 70 degrees forecast high. 70. and lake forest. clear lake. 70s. we'll do it at 72. and a good day for the wine country. the extended forecast calls for that chance of showers moving into the bay area tomorrow. temperatures will recover by wednesday and thursday, so after this brief little flirtation with this poor imitation of a storm, finally going to recover in the upper 7 0ás. >> this lackluster storm. >> at least it gives you something to talk about. okay. looks like months of heated debate and two walk-outs, but bart workers may finally officially have a new contract by the end of this week. riders in the meantime, are left scarred by the shut-down.
8:45 am
>> does that leave us also with the question of what can be done to prevent these sorts of things from happening in the future. this morning we sat down with state senator who shares the transportation committee. our first question is should transit strikes like this be illegal? >> well, this situation shouldn't happen so frequently. i've been elected office in the bay area for about 25 years i have been involved to some degree. so there's clearly something wrong at bart when it comes to collect bargaining. >> okay, so let's look at new york. we look at chicago. we look at other cities. we even look at san francisco. they are not allowed to strike. why do they not get to strike and we do? and should that change? >> well, a committee was taken quite a bit of time to investigate this as you know. we're going to continue to have a hearing before we go back into session in january which is our earliest we could entertain any legislation. what we want to look at how we can change at boston, washing on the, as well. don't know how their transit workers. >> what are the pluses and
8:46 am
minuses? >> that's part of what we're assessing. even though you ban a strike doesn't mean you eliminate labor problems. so there are other problems and organizations like this in the workforce. so there are things that we have been talking about. i have been, like they argue a lot about the numbers. they defendant's exhibit didn't believe the other side's numbers. we could have a state go in and look at those numbers six months before the contract stops. there's a variety of ways to do it. >> for a lot of the people i talk to, you negotiate and hit an impasse. you take it to ash administration -- arbitration and that's it but you keep the lines running. you don't inconvenience the entire bay area. >> that is what they do. in portland they have the same thing as base baseball arbitration. it's worked in the portland metropolitan area. as far as we can find out both labor and management are satisfied. >> what's the resistance here? >> the bay area and also los angeles and l. a. have the same provisions. very similar ones. you know, public employees negotiate
8:47 am
contracts all the time successfully. there is something at large. >> well, i understand that knight bart nor the unions are interested in arbitration for various reasons. >> that's true. >> so politically if you go to the state legislature and say let's do it that way through the legislature, you're going to get no arguments from both sides and as you and i know in committees, neither side wants it, we're not going to do it. what isn't heard is the public which basically looks at these two groups and says you couldn't get it done. you should take it out of your hands. you have repeatedly blown it. let's just take it away. >> if a legislature doesn't doing something about it, the initiative is probably what will happen because the commuters are so frustrated with it. and if this were an isolated time if this happened, it would be difficult enough, but as i said, there's a pattern to bart know gauche -- negotiations and it goes over and over again. >> i was reading through the preliminary releases on this new contract, and i see no change in the dynamics that could create another strike. in other words, the workers still have the right to strike.
8:48 am
the management is still barredded from training replacement drivers until they go on strike which makes it impossible. none of the building boxes have is changed. >> management will tell you that much of what they got as the work rules will change the dynamic four years from now. i hesitate to believe that just because we have been through this so often. so we're going to take a really serious look at it to make sure that this doesn't happen any longer. >> final question, there are transportation bonds out there. there are tax initiatives out there for roads, for rail, for a number of different things. what affect do you think this is going to have? >> my concern as i told you and others. polling shows us that public is not really anxious to spend more money on anything and this comes at a time when we're at a transportation fiscal cliff in california. our infrastructure is starting to fall apart and we have to get the voters to support revenue increases. on a scale of 1 to 10, how
8:49 am
would you sum up the negotiating process? you were on the inside? >> i was very involved. i was asked by both sides. it doesn't work. by any measurement, it's a one. >> i think you're being generous. >> you only gave me one to ten. what a frustrating situation again for all of us who can't really do much about it. >> no, we can't. and it's going to be interesting to see how it plays out. if we don't get a change in the state law to the legislature, does it go to the initiative process? and if it doesn't, is there going to be a lingering resentment where voters could say no to transportation bond which need two-thirds majority to pass which is very difficult to get or could they also say yes to tension and pay reforms like chuck reed in san jose is saying. either way, trust me, the echos of this are going to be heard for a while. >> all right. well, keep up. a bay area mall low wean party with a different kind of theme. what the kids are doing to have fun here without the focus. we'll be right back.

8:54 am
>> first of a i don't know to oversee that money because number one, it was a symbolic move. let's face it. it was a symbolic move to call out some of the dark money, the hidden money that is out there. they want to be able to identify the donors of some of these super packs and show where the money is coming ice t voters. >> a great service to voters. sparse, if all these people are into the business of reforming the finance system of politics, just simply in polls upon everybody who contributes, the obligation to identify yourself right down to the final pennies. that's all that should be required period. >> so you're not in favor of spending limits? >> oh, no, none of the above. are you kidding me? there's no such hinge -- such thing as anybody being obedient except for losing. >> as long as they are identified. now, some of the people were saying they don't want to identify and they hide behind well -- but the cases of identifying harassment, people being harassed for giving
8:55 am
money. >> zero. >> minimum. >> i have seen corporations get involved with boycott. we have seen that before. >> but that's fair game. let me tell you there's no question about it. you it's not the harassment i'm concerned about. the aggressive solicitation by people like me that find you didn't give to me. you gave to him. i am coming after you. >> whoever it is. left or right, it should be shown. no question about it. >> and it should be right down to the final penny. if you did that. final question. what groups were find.
8:56 am
who pulled their money together and gave it to a nonprofit. and the nonprofit then moved into california. there were two hours on the ballot. one was a prop 30 to increase the state tax by the governor. that got some of the money to oppose it. the big push was for prop 32 which was a measure to put on there that would require union members to check off if they wanted dues. in a fight over political money by people who were fighting to change the rules on political money. that's politics. >> and there are people out there carving -- starving. >> all right. still ahead. >> how bay area bikers start getting revved up in the battle against bullying. and we have some new details into that amusement park accident that injured several people while they were getting
8:57 am
off of a ride. we learned about the ride's operator when we come back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

twitter was a success. the new york stock exchange conducted mock i-p-o yesterday... with traders running simulated "buy" and "sell" orders... test the flow of those orde. we're going to have a test run. buy and sell orders to test the flow of those orders. you might remember the stock
9:09 am
exchange. they had a lot of technical problems when they put facebook out on its ipo last year. twitter plans to sell 70 million shares between 17 and 20 bucks a share starting sometime before the end of november. >> and it's mother nature's way of blowing off steam. it's gorgeous. mount etna showing its force. red hot lava shooting sky high for the 14th time this year. the latest happened more than a dozen small earthquakes on the italian islands. no reports of any damage. there was so much junk in the air because of this. that one up in alaska. and by the way, somebody said it was barbara striessand. >> and a number of people did that. >> they did. judy collins did it. >> it's a big hit. >> barbara striessand. judy collins had a minor hit.
9:10 am
whatever. >> she needs to be on trivia team. something not so are trivial. today's weather. let's start out with the fog and low clouds. that is how the day is getting. we are getting some sun out. a little bit north of the line. the sun is coming up this morning. also in the east bay sunshine and 52 degrees. we'll get sun spreading over the bay but later in the day, the shoreline is noting going to be much. livermoore at 53. the raders are going to be playing the steelers and it will be sunny and fairly mild. 67 degrees gametime. and boo at the zoo at east an van -- san francisco zoo. clouds and 62. low pressure spinning down to the south evaporates without this next level coming down is going to affect us as it dies to nevada. it's going to get close enough for a few showers tomorrow but just a small chance and not over much of the bay. the east end and the south bay
9:11 am
could be a few drops. temperatures will certainly drop. on the futurecast you can see the low clouds pull back to the shoreline. overnight gets cloudy. you can see that the north end of the bay begins to clear up. the south begins cloudy. it will be chilly tomorrow. maybe wet but by midweek we warm up. numbers look like mid 60s. weather can't be far away. coast-to-coast, everybody is cooling down except down in texas. overnight lows will be at 49. san francisco. 46 at mountainview and we recover to 73 in san jose. 70 at livermoore. 73 in fairfield. halloween will be mostly clear and chilly. >> spooky and chilly. the extended forecast after this little bit of a chance on monday. we'll warm it up the latter half of the week. it's all looking pretty good. bundle up tomorrow. it's going to be the first bite in the air. >> way have is been noticing that at night.
9:12 am
>> daytime is not bad though; right? >> sure. and washington is in a perpetual seen l of crisis and temporariest are loose. each time, the drama garners a lot of attention. >> how do we as news organizations? do we inflame it by amplifying? this morning we sit down with political science professor of uc burkely and asked him the gridlock. is it better or worse than ever? >> well, we're not quite the civil war proportions with this. i think you, you know, we do have examples in american history that are profoundly worse but we have to go back a long way to see this much agreement between the political parties back in the 19 teens and 1910s and before that. >> what is it about today's policy that seems to generate this ongoing gridlock especially in scenes in recent years? >> well, part of the reason is that this used to be a fair amount of fairly conservative members of congress and senators from the south who were members of the democratic party. that's not true anymore. the south. we have a much stronger sorting
9:13 am
of political parties by ideology and that amplifies the differences and the ideological disagreements between them. >> nerd, the sort of middle ground on both parties has eroded. >> they're falling apart. the parties don't overlap. they used to have a fair amount of love lap. in the middle of the 20th century there was a common ground and that's been e voice rated. >> so what we saw in the 50s and 60s were moderate republican and moderate democrat sort of doing a lot of the deal- making while the conservative and liberal on both sides stayed off to the side. >> yeah, the liberal and conservative ends weren't this far out there back then as they have gotten since then. so the parties -- the senator is disappearing for both of them and they're pulling apart further on the sides of each party. >> is there a difference in the issues being discussed? >> there are subtle differences in the issues, but the main acts of the conflict is still the same access that it's been for in this country for 100 years. this sort of left, right met or the still exists and organizes both.
9:14 am
they fall apart to a much greater degree. they become ab. we in the media get to the talking points. they put two people on the screen and have them go at it. they get to set their rules about what they want to talk about. >> right. we do have to keep in mind that congress usually -- usually does do a pretty good job of compromising on his differences. it has been 17 years since the government shut-down. usually they do manage to find common ground to get this done. i know that the american congress is about as popular as the ebola virus, but they usually do find a compromise. this kind of profound dysfunction is still relatively unusual despite the huge differences. >> where does the president fit in on this? i hear democrats now even saying where is
9:15 am
the leadership? why can't he get things done? >> well, the president has to negotiate with the republican-controlled house that is completely at odds when his -- with his vision of what good policy looks like. you have is to bring these people along and the president does not have a lot of care to offer them in terms of things the president wants to do that is house republicans would also like to see done. they're fundamentally at odds with each other. >> when i talk to people they say what happened to the days of bill clinton and ronald reagan and the days when the president used to be able to bring them to the white house or talk people into things. is that real or people looking back in the past with shiny glasses. >> we might have a little rose-colored retrospection going on. of the 17 government shut-downs since 180, 16 of them have been 1996 or prior. most of them have been under the regulatory. it was ronald reagan or tip o'neal that had this suitable bargaining
